Natural gas supplier Gasrec has published a free advice booklet, designed to help commercial vehicle fleets when appointing a fuel provider to support their transition from diesel to more environmentally-friendly and sustainable fuels.
Titled 10 Tough Questions to Ask Your Commercial Vehicle Gas Provider, the handy guide is available to download from the Gasrec website – bit.ly/gasrec10 – and covers the important issues to consider when appointing a new fuel supplier.
Natural gas is becoming an increasingly crucial alternative for the UK transport sector, with stringent government emission targets pushing to reduce HGV greenhouse gas emissions by 15 per cent by 2025.
Several major commercial vehicle manufacturers – including IVECO, Scania and Volvo – have already made the move into gas, with others expected to follow.
James Westcott, Chief Commercial Officer at Gasrec says: “More and more fleets are seeing the undeniable benefits of natural gas over diesel. It’s cheaper, cleaner and more sustainable and we have no doubt it represents the best solution for the road transport industry today.
“However, we understand that any decision to change to a new fuel is a significant one, and that’s why we’ve published this guide. Hopefully it will help smooth the process and flag the important points to consider when selecting your next fuel supplier.”
Gasrec is the UK’s largest supplier of natural gas and biomethane to the transport sector, fuelling an estimated 60 per cent of gas-powered HGVs on UK roads.
The company operates a network of open-access and dedicated customer sites, offering compressed natural gas (CNG), liquified natural gas (LNG) and biomethane.
